My new release MEET ME IN MAINE(Book One of The Blue Harbor Series) brings murder, mystery, and romance to a seaside town.
Sit back, put up your feet, and let me bring mystery and romance to your lives.
I leave the storefronts behind,
their tinted-green windows reflecting the bright sunlight.
I hurry toward the boardwalk and beach.
The soft sand will trickle through my toes.
The sea breeze propels me forward.
Beyond the white sand,
the waves dance and writhe in a demented dance,
a dance growing wilder by the minute.
The palm trees bow their heads to the wind.
Rooftops sail through the air.
Glass crunches beneath my feet
as I run through the streets.
The windows hang broken and twisted.
The saddest sight is the church.
The once-white church stands charcoal-black,
debris at its proud feet.
The deadly games have begun.
THE DEAD GAME
Heartache is for me.My heart yearns for thee.Lies fall so easily from your lips.They feel salty on my fingertips.I must remain strong.I hope I am wrong.
PREY FOR THE DEAD
Embroiled in the vamps’ evil games,
Shana travels to Quebec
for the vampire summit.
Amid murder and betrayal,
she must help her friends
find a way to save humanity.
THE DEAD AT HEART
Sad expressions for eternity
on frozen faces.
Actual tears mark
their frosty cheeks.
Beneath the music and gaiety
lies an undercurrent of evil.
THE DEAD GAME by Susanne Leist
Darkness brings a pall to town.
I turn around with a frown.
Soft footsteps echo on the street,
I know whom I’m destined to meet.
I should have listened to my heart’s song,
Listened to reason and right from wrong.
THE DEAD GAME SERIES
The circle of life.
We may fall,
but we’ll rise again
from the dust.
A never-ending circle.
When the music plays,
and your body sways,
let my arms hold you,
and my body spoons you.
We’ll sashay to our own beat
and let the town fall at our feet.
As the demons fall from grace,
this remains our special place.
in the humid air.
The night hides their cries
as they’re gone before our eyes.
Brutal winds follow close on my heels,Thunder and lightning joining the crusade.Fluorescent lights paint the night sky,Rings of orange, yellow, and red.
A vortex of horror in unending circlesMakes its way to the small town of Oasis,Where I will be waiting with a sword in hand,Secure in the knowledge Wolf won’t win.
The Watchers have joined the battle.They stand on the hill beyond,Their raincoats flapping in the wind,Concealing their cache of weapons.
We will protect Linda from the devil,An army standing strong against the harsh winds.The Father clutches his bible of spells,Ready to cast the evil from our town.
We have come together as one,Humans, vampires, and human vampires.The last battle on this earthly planet,Which will determine our combined fate.
Linda clings to her friends,Huddled together in the storm.Will she choose wisely and correctly?Will she choose me above The Dead?
The time has come for the showdown.Time has slowed to a halt.We raise our weapons above our heads,Waiting for evil to make its final appearance.
Wolf has been given a new body,But I recognize his deadly soul.A new package for an old oneDoes not change the battle to be won.
Our games have just begun.
Can luck save the residents of Oasisfrom rogue vampires desperate for blood?Time will tell.

The flames racing across the boardwalk at Chateau Frontenac
are nothing compared to the fire burning in Shana’s heart.
A town where the snow is black,
bringing coldness & fear.
Old remnants of tears held back
& times too hard to bear.
Woven from black sheets of rain,
fear covers in disarray.
Anguished & frozen with pain,
dark petals fall in dismay.
My love has gone astray.
I don’t believe I can stay.
As moans fill the night air,
I must depart his snare.
He gives me a goodbye kiss,
then he’s gone with a hiss.
Among the tombstones,
Butterflies are aflutter.
A blanket of orange & red
falls to cover the green.
Sighs cut the silence
Like a sharp knife.
Beneath the ground,
The Dead wait.
The leaves lift in the wind,
Twirling to form shapes.
At the end of the journey,
where the sea runs red,
the nights grow long,
dark shadows roam free,
and The Dead come to play.
The sky is under attack
from demons rising below.
The sun shines no more,
hidden behind the moon’s glare.
Linda is determined to fight
and save her beloved town.
